This course is designed to help future lawyers prepare to work with paralegals. A lawyer’s practice is rarely a solo endeavor. Lawyers regularly work with others in doing legal work and serving their clients. Paralegals play a key role in the delivery of legal services.
This course is essentially research-based. It aims to help students understand the role of paralegals and working with them to best serve clients and meet the public’s legal needs. Throughout the course, students will uncover and understand the intricacies (policies, politics, and inter-professional conflicts) of the regulation of paralegals and other non-lawyers who provide legal services in Ontario and elsewhere in Canada. The course will explore paralegals’ role in contributing to and enhancing A2J, including current and proposed regulatory schemes governing paralegals, and the relationship between lawyers and paralegals in the legal services ecosystem. Particular focus will be given to paralegals’ scope of practice and educational standards. Students will be encouraged to think critically and creatively about the role of paralegals, A2J, the relationships between lawyers and paralegals, and the public’s legal needs. Students will explore options to expand the role of Ontario’s licensed paralegals in the justice system. In family law , for example, the public’s needs are great but lawyers’ services are largely unaffordable for most parties.
The course will be run as a seminar. It will not be lecture based. Regular participation and attendance are essential. Students will be expected to engage in research, discussion, debate, and exploration and, ultimately, to craft proposals for regulatory innovation.

Payment of Fees (Student Accounts / Cashier's Office)
In the spirit of academic excellence and transnational law, the University of Windsor Faculty of Law and University of Detroit Mercy School of Law have established a course exchange program. This program will provide interested students with the ability to explore legal issues from an international and comparative law perspective, and gives each student at Detroit Mercy Law and Windsor Law the opportunity to study internationally as part of their legal education. Students in good standing enrolled in the single Juris Doctor programs at either Windsor Law or Detroit Mercy Law may take one course at the other institution, while paying the home institution’s tuition. Allowable courses include classroom and elective courses, and exclude clinical, mandatory first year courses, or other required courses. Each institution will publish, on a semester basis, a list of offered consortium courses. A student’s enrollment in any particular course is contingent upon space being available in the course with priority being given to students at the home school. Courses will count towards the maximum credit hours allowed during a semester, according to the student’s home school and program. Students will be bound by the academic, attendance, and conduct policies of the host institution for the course in which they are enrolled.
